    Default Flesch-Kincaid Readability

    :?

    I am doing a lot of academic writing and want to know how I can test my work on a Flesch-kinkaid readability scale so that I can eventually improve. Any suggestions?

    Hello! Welcome to the forum!

    I did a quick search on a hunch that I might be able to find something online, and I did. :D

    Take a look here:

    http://www.aellalei.com/resources/sample.html

    It's a writing sample analyser where you can paste in examples of your own work and get it analysed to show:

    • The Flesch Reading Ease Scale
      The Fog Scale
      The Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level

    Of course, if you have any more questions, just ask here and we'll be happy to help.

    Regards,

    EDIT:
    We now have our own text analyser available here: http://www.usingenglish.com/resource...statistics.php
    An advanced text analyser is available to members that includes the above readability tests (and much more) here: http://www.usingenglish.com/members/text-analysis/
